Certificate in Building Control, Kudos CABE! Most of the subjects specified for the 7 days courses are very relevant and are core classes in construction quality control management for the built environment. After certification, member can supervises and oversees building construction to ensure that procedures meet quality and efficiency standards, specifications and regulations. The personnel can also work with clients to ensure the building construction to meet their needs and requirements. It will be advantageous for this certificate in our industry to boost up the educational scales of the "Clerk of Works" since they are manager on a construction site - A clerk of works inspects the workmanship, quality and safety of work on construction sites and conducting regular site inspections and checking that building plans are being followed correctly. Check that works are being carried out to the correct specifications and legal, safety and environmental standards.
